Thank you, Astrid!
Thank you very much for identifying the subject of the photo in your comment! Though we do our best to provide accurate descriptive information, we often rely on a mix of original research, guesswork, and decades of collected cataloging (some professional, some the work of donors or student interns) to add descriptions to content. Your identification of IA Horowitz in this photo, combined with a bit of extra research, not only allowed us to enrich this record, but also to connect it to an issue of the college newsletter describing the chessmaster's visit to campus.
